Dual Voltage Quad Circuit Breakers Save the Day
Quad Pole Breakers, are there dual amperage on these breakers or just a single amperage. Let me say it this way can you get a 30 & 50 on a single quad pole breaker?
Thank Goodness for Dual Voltage Quad Circuit Breakers

Quad Circuit Breakers Enable 2-240 Volt Circuits
Nelson, depending on the electrical circuit panel that you are referring to, there are quad circuit breakers that are available in the 240 volt 30 amp and 240 volt 50 amp combination. Quad circuit breakers are great when I need to add another 240 volt circuit because the quad circuit breaker provides for two 240 volt circuits in the same space where one 240 volt circuit was in the form of a full size 240 volt circuit breaker. The electrical panel must be designed to allow for these types of circuit breakers due to the added number of circuits that be limited.
Please note that I highly recommend that all electrical panel work be performed by a qualified licensed electrical contractor.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
